Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?

I have a Campbell Hausfeld compressor and the electrical breaker gets thrown. I can lubricate the piston and away it goes for a few cycles, runs fine, then flips the breaker. Oil it again and away it goes. Is there any way to have the lubrication system added to avoid this problem?

2000 Monte Carlo has a slow oil leak started noticing oil on the garage floor. I also noticed that if I park the car on a small incline such as my drive way the leak goes away at least there's no oil on the driveway. The car's oil was changed with a premium synthetic oil in January. Important to point out that this car has less that 100,000 miles on it. Also important to point out that I doubt seriously that we're putting even 3,000 miles a month on the car. Was just wondering what I can do to g


As a mechanic I will say it can be multi things that can cause a leak. but when you say it goes away on slight incline that normaly means it is toward the front of the engine. I must say just because their is low miles does not mean a seal will not g ... 2000 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

Burning oil i have a saab 95 econ thats eleven years old. when i pull away from the drive in the mornings it puff's out white/blue smoke till i put my foot down and blow it out, after thet it's not a problem. some day's it's worse then other's mainly if it's got oil in it. if i go over half way on the dip stick marker then it poors out more smoke then normal. i know the colour of the smoke means it's burning oil and the more smoke the more oil it has burned, thats y i have to leave it so low. th


I believe what you have going on with the car is your Valve seals have gotten brittle and have cracked. now the reason it smokes on startup is because when you shut it off. the oil is bypassing the valve seals and is collectiing in your combustion a ... 1999 Saab 9-5

Hi there i drive a 1989 nissan homy 4wd van engine type TD27. my problem is the hand brake light remains on when hand brake is off and not sure what this means.I have been told it might be the brake oil level so i topped that up and it went away for a while but now has returned and brake oil level is way above minimum so wonderin if anyone knows if there are any other things it could be warning me about

Im always having to put antifreeze in once a week. The way i know it needs it is when temp. gauge surges all the way up then it comes back down. No visible sign on any leaks any where. When i drive to work which is 15 minutes away i always smell antifreeze when i get out but engine and acc. are completly dry. Ive checked dipstick to oil too. i guess my question is What do i do to fix this problem

My 91 prelude 2.1 si wont start. Originally it just had an overheating problem. I drove it 300 miles and literally having to stop 2 refill the radiator with water because it overheated. Finally 30 miles away from home my techique came to a stop, forcing me to tow it the rest of the way. Now its dead in my garage and would like some advice on what to fix next. I changed the thermostat, dist cap and rotor, spark plugs and wires, oil and filter, and still wont start. what to do???


I think at the minimum you have a blown head gasket. I am guessing you drove the car a considerable distance with not enough coolant and now you may have done extensive damage to the engine. I am guessing that if the engine still cranks, than the hea ... 1990 Honda Prelude

I would greatly appreciate a list of check engine light codes for a 91 dodge spirit. I believe the code it put out was either: 1,2,4,7,5,5 3,4,7,5,5 This is for my girlfriends daughter, she was away at college and on the way home the check engine light came on. It is not overheating and the oil is fine. I think it is a O2 sensor but i would like to make certain since she is home for the weekend and i would like to make sure she has a safe trip back to school.


Your codes are two digits. It would be 12, 47, 55 (end)\015\01212 - memory stand by power lost - no big deal\015\01247 - battery voltage too low - 55 (end of codes) ... 1991 Dodge Spirit

My 98 volvo S70 occasionally will hesitate when I slow for traffic or a light. It has stalled twice while completely stopped at a light, but restarted right away. The dealer changed the spark plugs, cable, fuel filter and the air filter and changed the oil but it behaved this way again yesterday. Today it is driving OK. Any ideas?

I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT with the 3.4 l v6, i'm trying to follow a guide but i'm running into some problems removing the oil pan, the book is unclear about the approach, and the sub-frame seems to be in the way, yet removing this will require much additional work. if this can be avoided, that would be great, the engine has been lifted about 3 inches, but still not enough room to remove the pan.


Even though you have removed all the bolts holding the pan on you still have to have enough clearance for the pan to clear the oil pickup tube inside the sump.\015\012if the subframe can be removed it will be a lot less work than removing the e ... 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT

My 1997 pontiac grandam 2.4 4 cylinder has a slight rattling noise. First time I heard it, I thought it was low oil, I changed my oil and it went away for a long time. It began to make it again, so I changed my oil again, (it was due time anyways) but it has yet to go away. I have checked my oil and it is still full, all my fluids are full.

Hi i was trying to remove my oil filter on my honda prelude 1996 and it ended up getting bent and twisted. I puncture a screwdriver in the oil filter and it made a big tear on the oil filter. Now, I have no way of getting around to it, only hope is the base of the filter which is hard to get by since the metal rod is on the way. Can you please help me out on this one, thanks.

Engine ticking I just bought a '95 4x4 4 cylinder pickup. after changing the oil it ticked as if the oil hadn't gotten to the engine yet but this went away after it warmed up. It did this two or three other times momentarily then went away. A week later I checked the oil when filling up and added a little. Then all of a sudden the ticking went out of control. I replaced the third cylender rocker arm/lifter which wouldnt compress but it is still ticking. I put some cr2 cleaner in it and it went a

I have a 1993 Chevy Truck that every once in a while will get a knocking sound from the engine at normal operating temperature. During this time the oil pressure will drop and it feels like the engine is losing power. If I let it cool down, the knock will go away. If I continue driving it will continue for quite some time before eventually going away. I have checked the oil every time this happens and it had adequate oil levels. Any ideas?


Ouch .. that sounds like a good way to ruin an engine .. the low oil pressure should tell you to stop driving until the problem is fixed .. if the oil and filter havnt been changed regularly (sometimes even if they have) then you could have sludge b ... 1993 Chevrolet K1500

Just bought a used 1996 Honda Accord 4dr 6cyl and it has a major oil problem. when not even on it would leak oil. the car ran out of 5 qts of oil in a 50 mile drive. noticed the oil filter was 1/2 inch to small (by the way it was a honda dealership oil filter) so the oil filter was replaced but it was still leaking from the oil pan. yesterday the oil pan gasket was replaced. after these 2 things were done the car stopped leaking oil while it was turned off. now it leaks when its turned on
